Today, March 1, is National Pig Day! Celebrate this joyous occasion by giving thanks to your favorite pig. Or delicious pig-based product.
Last year, we celebrated National Pig Day with our Pig Heaven Honor Roll, a list of our picks for top pork purveyors, pork dishes, pork-knowledgeable chefs, and pork-related media in the country. We also made it a point to saturate the week of last year's National Pig Day with more pig-related posts than usual.
After the jump are ten of our favorite bacon and pork-filled posts from the last year.
